"I wish my brother would learn a trade, so I would know what kind of work he’s out of." ~ Henny Youngman (1906 – 1998) English-born American comedian
Happy Labor Day to one and all, or at least that is what many are celebrating here in our nation, on this Monday, September 7, 2015. I am glad to be off today. I'm thankful that for most of my working life I have been able to work at places that typically observed the official holidays. You never know when things might change. I saw a little cartoon of three turkeys standing out in the yard talking. One said he was a little nervous because he thought something might be up since the farmer had just unfriended him on Facebook. Since today does have something to do with jobs, I did see a another funny little tidbit where the personnel lady told the job seeker: "Your resume' is bloated with half truths, false praise, exaggeration, and unsubstantiated accomplishments. We think you might do a good job writing our annual report." I am thankful for the job I have. I read one lament talking about how that today's market is still pretty tough. They typically are looking for someone with the wisdom and experience of a 50 year old, the drive of a 30 year old, and someone willing to work for the pay of a 20 year old. Sounds about right. I saw another little ditty where companies can no longer ask a lot of health related questions but their insurance was requiring all new employees to sign a do not resuscitate order. I also saw a more prophetic cartoon showing the unemployment office full of Santas. The calendar on the wall said December 26th. I do hope you enjoy your day and I will be on the look out for something to fill up my keystroke quota come tomorrow. May God bless us, one and all. Amen. .....More later.
Many years in this sojourn here on planet earth and I have the scars to prove it but I have been, am now, and will be blessed to have had the privilege of doing what little I've done to honor God and serve others.
